Jenna Waterbury

(LCSW, DCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the States of Florida (SW 12079) and Michigan (#6801085861). I graduated with my Master's Degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan in 2004. I have been working with children, teens, adults and families since 2000. I have experience working with individuals of all ages and specialize in working with teens, adults, couples, and parents as they are struggling through life transitions.

My career has focused on assisting a variety of clients using a psycho-dynamic, cognitive behavioral and mindfulness approach to therapy. I have experience helping individuals with issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, behavioral challenges, life transitions, etc. I own a private practice located in sunny Naples, FL. I previously worked as a contractual therapist in an office setting as well as an in-home therapist for families affected by substance abuse, domestic violence, abuse and neglect and those afflicted with other difficult life circumstances.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I provide a safe and nurturing counseling environment which allows individuals to open up and process challenges they are facing. I believe that each individual has their own unique story. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I believe that therapists should meet each client where they are on their journey and help them get to where they want to be.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support you. I look forward to working with you!

Thank you Jenna

Jenna makes talking an expressing so easy, she's very dynamic and makes you go think, very assertive and looks ways so you can feel comfortable, she's like that family member you always wish you had, she guides you and makes you analyze and focus on the things that matter. I have been with her for 3 months and the change I have made in this amount of time got me by surprise, sometimes guidance and hearing is all you need to find focus and break chains, start making changes and believe and love yourself.

Jenna is kind, patient and truly knows what she's doing! I am very lucky to have landed on Jenna, because her expertise makes her not only good at her job, but very qualified. She makes you reflect and she is also an excellent person to communicate with on an emotional, human level.

Written by M.A. on Jun 13, 2018 after counseling with Jenna for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting, self esteem, and anger

Jenna doesn't seem like a therapist to me at all which makes things a little easier. She's a real life human being and it seems as though I'm talking to a long-time friend.

Written by C.H. on Jun 02, 2018 after counseling with Jenna for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I love Jenna! She is compassionate about her clients and very insightful. She offers great tips for coping. I'm lucky to have found her.

Written by M.E. on Apr 25, 2018 after counseling with Jenna for 4 weeks

Jenna provides wonderful insight into things we discuss. She is my second counselor ever and my first was one I saw for 15 years! Jenna has opened my eyes to new ways to view some of my issues. I’m so happy to have found her!

Written by M.I. on Apr 23, 2018 after counseling with Jenna for 1 year on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and self esteem

Jenna is great! I’ve been working with her for about a year and we are getting ready to wrap up. My life has really changed because I could message her in the middle of a difficult situation and she would show me healthy ways to work through it and see the situation differently. Little by little that has changed me and how I interact with others and how I see the world. It’s been awesome.

Jenna is an excellent counselor. And a great person too!

Written by K.I. on Mar 19, 2018 after counseling with Jenna for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and anger

Jenna has helped open my eyes to new ideas and concepts that had never been mentioned by other therapists I've tried in person. I feel like I've started on a path to better understanding myself.

Jenna is an interesting counselor. Not only does she have an interesting insight on subjects, she lets the session progress at your pace. She will talk the "meat and potatoes" with you, but also "shoot the breeze" if you need a casual conversation to cool down. I'm very happy that I have found her, and am excited for future sessions. 10/10

Jenna is a very professional, kind and makes you feel comfortable to open up to her. She gives unwavering support and is currently helping me through an incredibly difficult time. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Written by S.H. on Oct 24, 2017 after counseling with Jenna for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and family

Jenna was very responsive, and offered excellent insight during our discussions. Despite only communicating via messaging, which was my preferred method of communicating, she still seemed incredibly warm and friendly, and immediately put me at ease. I felt an easy rapport almost from the first message, and I found her very easy to "talk" to. I felt immediately like I had someone I could talk to when I felt I was in crisis. I'd recommend her to anyone trying out this type of counseling.

Written by W.H. on Aug 21, 2017 after counseling with Jenna for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Jenna is the best therapist I have ever had. I've seen 4 others in the past but did not stick with them because I didn't fee a connection or they did not understand what my primary concerns were for treatment. Jenna is empathetic, funny, and been very helpful. My sister has told me that I seem healthier than I have in years. My self confidence has been the best it's ever been but excited to keep improving with Jenna's help.

Great counselor.

Written by N.O. on Jul 19, 2017 after counseling with Jenna for 2 weeks on issues concerning grief

Jenna is as solid as a rock. From day one she has listened, reflected and supported me. I was pretty lost when I came here and Jenna has been able to help me find my map and read it, too. I don't know where I would be without Jenna's help. I will always be grateful.

Written by K.A. on Jun 25, 2017 after counseling with Jenna for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and self esteem

Jenna has helped me tremendously! I really enjoy that she gives me helpful resources to rely on when I need them and advice when I need it. She's also a great person to just vent too - sometimes you just need to get it out!

Written by M.A. on Jun 21, 2017 after counseling with Jenna for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, and intimacy-related

Working with Jenna has been really great. I love being able to have more regular chat based conversations than I would with a regular office therapist. She is great about reading through my long messages and replying in a very reasonable amount of time. It's not real time chat but that's fine. I still get so many more thoughts heard and questions answered than I ever have with in-person therapists. I live overseas and travel so the ability to connect regularly is irreplaceable. I also love her insight, encouragement, and ideas. I couldn't be happier. Thanks Jenna!

Written by W.H on May 19, 2017 after counseling with Jenna for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Jenna is very compassionate. I appreciate her non-judgemental attitude that makes me feel completely comfortable sharing delicate experiences. I've only been talking to her for a few weeks but I feel like my mental health has already improved.

I love how often she responds to me. I was specifically looking for someone that would be able to talk to me everyday, and multiple times a day if that's what I needed. I also feel like the advice she gives me is genuine and thoughtful. All around this has been a better experience than I expected!
